Please read and follow the Simple Lives Thursday bloghop rules
Since Simple Lives Thursday is growing, as a group, the five hosts have decided to set some ground rules in order to keep the integrity of the blog hop.
1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole. Such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policeman, however, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.
2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.
Now that we’ve set some ground rules… the fun part! We’re excited to share with all of you that we will be choosing five posts from the previous SLT to highlight each week. Those chosen will be promoted and linked on all five host blogs. We — Annette, Wardeh, Alicia, Mare and me — will select five posts each week that resonate with us and that we feel all of our readers should read. As a highlighted post you will also have the chance to win in special giveaways that we will be starting soon — another great reason to link up and share all that you do to live a simple and intentional life!
1. My Small Steps Toward Sustainability by Seattle Seedling
For many, living a sustainable life can seem daunting and overwhelming. Stacy shows us her journey beginning with small, natural steps.
2. Homemade Produce Bags – Forget the Plastic by The Improbable Farmer
These produce bags are made from recycled t-shirts! They look awesome – and the blogger herself said she just learned to sew, so how hard can they be?

We love how simple this dish is. She dried her own cherry tomatoes and made the pesto, PLUS homemade sourdough pasta… how much more nourishing and delicious can this dish get?

A great way to compost your eggshells… plant seeds in them. All natural and your kids will love it to!
